Girl Scouts volunteering in southwest Michigan
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Girl scouts from the Kalamazoo area are trying to make the world a better place.
As part of a week-long initiative, sixth graders in Mattawan are packing 200 boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
The girls stuff each box with supplies and toys to ship out to more than 100 different countries for children in need over the holidays.
The girls say they enjoy volunteering and believe even the smallest efforts can make a big difference.
Several other local troops have also spent the week volunteering, with everything from cleaning up trails to tutoring younger kids to collecting donations of winter clothing.
